It has been shown that ionic oxides only slightly modify the rate and molecular weight for the solid state polymerization of β-propiolactone and isobutene whereas the effect is much larger in the liquid phase. Resistance measurements of the pure monomers during solid state polymerization have been made. The possibility of an ionic mechanism of polymerization according to the model proposed by fowler is discussed to explain conductivity induced in polymers by ionizing radiation.
